Another Nokia classic phone has been revived again and it is called Nokia 6300 4G. The original which was released way back in 2007 was known for its stainless plates, which, unfortunately, has not been brought back.
The Nokia 6300 4G looks completely different the original and save for the power button at the top, the design does not evoke a feeling of nostalgia. However, the new model does pack significant upgrades on the inside.
It is powered powered by a Snapdragon 210 processor along with 512MB of RAM, the Nokia 6300 4G also boasts 4GB of built-in storage, a big boost over the 7.8MB internal storage of the 2007 model. There is also support for storage expansion (up to 32GB) via a MicroSD card slot.
The display is bigger at 2.4-inches and so is the removable battery which has nearly doubled from 860mAh to 1500mAh and charges via a MicroUSB port. HMD Global says the battery will last up to 27 days in standby.
Another big upgrade is the addition of 4G support and a Wi-Fi hotspot. There is a VGA camera on the back with a flashlight that doubles as the camera flash. There is GPS, Bluetooth, dual nano-SIM support (select markets), FM radio, and an audio jack.
Runing KaiOS, the Nokia 6300 4G also comes with a bunch of pre-installed apps including Facebook, WhatsApp, and YouTube. It also has Google Assistant for setting reminders and getting answers to questions.
